We like to think we're experts when it comes to sugary confections, but it's safe to say that few people know sweets the way Doron Petersan does. The owner of Sticky Fingers Bakery (and winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars) specializes in concocting delectable indulgences that are free of animal products, but her Columbia Heights outpost is a favorite stop among vegans and omnivores, alike. Since the season of festive baking is upon us, we got Petersan to share the recipes for three of her favorite holiday desserts — think eggnog cupcakes, gingerbread whoopie pies, and chocolate-peppermint sandwich cookies. Drool. Read on to get the recipe for each treat straight from the bakery babe herself.
